Lily James Is 'So Excited' for Dan Stevens to Play The Beast in 'Beauty & the Beast'!

Lily James keeps close to Richard Madden as they arrive at the screening of their latest film Cinderella held at the Tribeca Grand Hotel on Sunday (March 8) in New York City.

That same day, the 25-year-old actress and Richard, 28, made their way to the Apple Store Soho to attend a special Cinderella Q&A as part of Apple’s Meet The Actors series.

At the event, Lily shared her excitement about the recent announcement that her Downton Abbey co-star Dan Stevens will play The Beast/Prince in Beauty and the Beast.

“I’m so excited he’s playing the beast! I couldn’t believe it, I texted him immediately,” Lily said (via THR). “Practice your dancing, because you’re gonna have to do it at some point!”

FYI: Lily is wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress with Stuart Weitzman heels.
